Embodiment, Subjectivity and Ageing: Emerging Areas of Exploration
10 - 11 September 2009
This symposium will promote discussion on ageing with particular attention to what embodiment means and entails in the context of older age. While social gerontology is an established and productive field of research, less prominent has been the careful sociological and anthropological attention paid to the experience of ageing, embodiment, and subjectivity. A small but growing number of scholars have been working at this point of intersection, but research in this area remains fractured and disparate. Furthermore, the attention that is generally paid in social science to embodiment usually relates to youth and middle age rather than in relation to the ageing body.
This meeting is an opportunity to bring social scientists working on such questions of ageing together to discuss their research, and seeks to open new space to consider the theoretical possibilities suggested by their work. In particular, the meeting seeks to bring together recent sociological and anthropological work investigating ageing and the body with colleagues working in medicine and assistive technology.
